another mural on it’s way….

13 March 2009
This time it’s going to be in the Geisinger Wilkes-Barre - a healing garden for patients families off of the new Intensive Care Unit - the idea is to use the image a doctor/photographer’s waterfall from Rickett’s Glen - I’m to start in two weeks - the wall is about 23? x 38?  this shows a study of what’s to be done - the white parts are where there are windows.

Om/Mandala at Balance Yoga Studio

30 March 2009
        Jen - owner/ teacher of Balance Yoga Studio on Rutter Ave Forty Fort, Pa commissioned me to do a large OM sign in her amazingly gorgeous space - I got inspired by taking her class Saturday morning and then going to a Om workshop where we practiced incorporating vocalizing “om” with our poses.  “OM” is the universal sound - the crashing of waves - the wind through the wheat field, the insects chattering - it’s what connects humans, with the plants and animals -

Spring is coming…..

Still working on the wall….

      Here’s a close up - about a third of the wall - the next step is to go find this waterfall at Rickett’s Glen - many of the workers say they’ve been to this waterfall - even jumped off it!

Sorry, no third friday this month….

13 May 2009

Apparently a map for Kingston didn’t get out to publication for open studios — so, I won’t be open this friday.. HOWEVER- will be third Friday in JUNE!!!  Sorry for any inconvenience.

South Wall of Geisinger “Serenity Room” study

27 May 2009
      The opposite wall of the waterfall will be painted with trees and mountains and a stream - both the north and south murals will be seen from the outside.  I plan to begin in earnest Tues……. yahoo!

Started the continuation of the Mural at Geisinger today!!

02 June 2009
     I started below the window and will continue on the opposite wall of the waterfall - a grove of birtch trees a stream and a soft yellow glow vignetted up and beyond - breathe deep….. all is really well….  {yoogallery src=[/images/stories/blog/leigh_0602] style=[lightbox] height=[100]}

First Friday in Scranton at Marquis ~

03 June 2009
      Marquis Art and Frame in Scranton is part of “First Friday” in Scranton - where most galleries and studios are open for visitation.  What’s different this Friday is Ken Marquis has changed his gallery format showing select local artist whose works will be on display from now on.  I’m fortunate to be one selected along with Jim Lennox, Nina Davidowitz, and Karen Poels - Last first Friday in Scranton had about 1,000 visitors —– Scranton loves its ART —- Shown here are my black and white paintings - an assemblage piece by Karen Poels and a sculpture by Jim Lennox.
